About CLSD

The Comprehensive Literacy State Development (CLSD) program is authorized under Sections 2221-2225 of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act, as amended (ESEA).  The purpose of the CLSD discretionary grants is to create a comprehensive literacy program to advance literacy skills, including pre-literacy skills, reading, and writing, for children from birth through grade 12, with an emphasis on disadvantaged children, including children living in poverty, English learners, and children with disabilities.

Note: A portion of the funds appropriated for CLSD are set aside for Outlying Areas and Bureau of Indian Education schools.
